Conference Description

Objective:

This online conference will help practitioners to understand the new investment screening framework introduced in 2019 and which will enter into force on 11 October 2020. It will explain how it will affect the free movement of capital, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and other foreign direct investments into the EU.

Practical aspects for Member State screening authorities and for in-house and external legal counsel acting for foreign investors and target companies in European M&A will be addressed.

Key topics:

  • How to interpret and apply the EU Investment Screening Regulation 2019/452 in practice;
  • How to identify and mitigate risks to EU and Member State security or public order;
  • Critical technologies, infrastructure, supplies, data and media;
  • Impact on EU foreign direct investments (FDI), takeovers and M&A transactions;
  • Ownership due diligence for purposes of foreign investment control;
  • Best practices for foreign investors, legal counsel and financial intermediaries;
  • Screening and free movement of capital: National screening and the Capital Markets Union (CMU);
